50's WEEKEND CASUAL IN THE SUNSHINE

The knitted sweater is my grandmother's from the fifties, the rest is old, new stuff. Or how would one put it; new-old, old-new. Hmm. Later in the Easter weekend it got so warm one could stay out with short sleeves on. Finally!

I feel there's been an awful lot of pictures of me here on this blog lately. You know sometimes when blogging this 'what-the-hell-am-I-doing-just-posting-pictures-of-myself-here-all-the-time'-feeling comes over you. Another case of the 'blogsistential crisis' perhaps. But I do remember this little poll I had last autumn where it turned out that in the end outfit posts were the most required. Le sigh. And from time to time there has been very little of those too. I blog in cycles I guess.

Umm, well yes, anyway, if you just can't get enough I suggest you like The Freelancer's Fashion Blog on Facebook too. In the beginning I had no exact idea why I started that page, I just thought it'd be smart at some point or something like that. But it perhaps turned out a less official version of the blog, more face to face interaction. (I mean, as face to face as you can go in the virtual world...) It's also been rather useful. And it is quite fun!

Anyway, now's the time to like it if you will - this blog is reaching 2,000 followers trough Blogger soon and the Facebook page is slowly but certainly climbing up to 1,000 likes. I'm putting togheter something nice for all of you when 2000+1000 happens!

(Btw I also think I look like a squirrel in the first picture but I posted it anyway.)

Your blog always inspires me to try different outfits with stuff I already own, this one no exception, I love it!

As so many, I love your blog and the outfit posts are my favourite. You make casual clothes even look so glamorous :)

Magdalena Hai said...

Even though I'm not a fashion-blogger myself, I enjoy seeing the beauty you create (and are). It seems so effortless! You've actually inspired me to do something with my hair now and then (not the usual ponytail stuff). :)

Erin said...

Ulrika, you're so very lovely :)
I agree with feeling strange about posting lots of pictures of myself. But what i love about so many other blogs (and yours especially :D) is being able to see how outfits are worn and styled. Outfit posts are very well loved :)

One reason for me to visit your blog regularly are your amazing outfits! So don't stop posting them! Your look is so inspiring, even when you look like a squirrel! Squirrels are very cute, you know? ;o))

You do not look like a squirrel *giggle*, you look lovely. I know what you mean about feeling weird about posting pictures all the time but it is what readers want and enjoy. You always look great too. X

I love your style and how you incorporate pieces that represent different times. My clothing style obsession is the 1920/1940s era. They just scream sophistication!
